ToC History & Theory October 2015 issue and new journal Historical Encounters

History & Theory is one of the leading journals in the area of historical theory and publishes interesting contributions that have wider relevance for historical research in other fields.
A related journal with a slightly different orientation has just been launched called Historical Encounters.

Historical Encounters is a peer-reviewed, open access, interdsiciplinary journal dedicated to the empirical and theoretical study of:

  • historical consciousness (how we experience the past as something alien to the present; how we understand and relate, both cognitively and affectively, to the past; and how our historically-constituted consciousness shapes our understanding and interpretation of historical representations in the present and influences how we orient ourselves to possible futures);
  • historical cultures (the effective and affective relationship that a human group has with its own past; the agents who create and transform it; the oral, print, visual, dramatic, and interactive media representations through which it is lived, and by which it is disseminated; the personal, social, commercial, and political uses to which it is put; and the processes of reception that shape encounters with it);
  • history education (how we know, teach, and learn history through: schools, universities, museums, public commemorations, tourist venues, heritage sites, local history societies, and other formal and informal settings).
  • Submissions from across the fields of public history, history didactics, curriculum & pedagogy studies, cultural studies, narrative theory
